Fat Grafting Information
- Duration: App. 1 hour
- Anesthesia: Local (Deep Sleep) Anesthesia
- Fasting: From 6 hours before the surgery
- Stitch Removal: 6~7 days after
- Hospitalization: N/A
- Washing Face: Available after a week
- Recommended Stay in Korea: Min. 7 days
- Mani & Pedicure: Must be removed
- Recommended Post-operative Cares: Avoid pressure and minimize any movement of the treated area for 2-3 weeks after the procedure in order to let the fat cells settle. (Do not rub or massage with cold pack)
Take in sufficient nutrients – Excessive diet may interrupt fat cells settling down. Avoid hot saunas, strenuous exercise, and acute stress
- What is Micro Fat grafting?
- This is a method that extracts unnecessary fat from abdomen, thighs, buttocks and other areas and pull out pure fat through centrifuge and then injects that pure fat into face. A fat injection at WONJIN can improve the overall dimension of the face which amplifies anti aging to give you a younger looking face.
- Recommended for those who
- 1. Have a sunken or uneven forehead
- 2. Have sunken eyelids
- 3. Wish to make their flat nose higher
- 4. Wish to add volume on thin cheeks
- 5. Need to improve smile lines
- 6. Wish to correct an inverted triangle shaped face
- 7. Wish to look younger overall
Areas for fat grafting
Nose (smile lines)
Micro fat grafting
Micro fat grafting at WONJIN uses injection to transplant trace amounts of fat evenly for accuracy and a higher rate of transplant. The fat is extracted from the abdomen or thighs, a process effective for body contouring as well. Because it is injected, general anesthesia and incision is not necessary.
|Type||Micro fat grafting||Regular fat grafting|
|Period||Semi permanent||1~3 years|
|Effect||Youthful and pretty face||Swollen and unnatural face|
|Features||A natural effect after the first treatment||Unnatural results can occur if too much fat is grafted|
Micro fat grafting surgical method
- Lipokit fat grafting
- Equipment that can perform liposuction and centrifugation is used to extract fat and purify it, allowing minimal possibility for infection. It removes free oil, responsible for the survivability of the fat, which allows cohesive fat grafting.
- Stem cell fat grafting
- This is a complex procedure using concentrated pure growth factors that were extracted from fat tissues and purified to amplify engraftment rate of fat cells. This is suitable for people who don’t have enough time as it requires only few hours for recovery.
Smart stem cell fat grafting
Smart system fat grafting reduces the chance for failed fat transplant by extracting unnecessary fat and separating the clean fat cells. These cells are further separated into healthy cells to transplant them on the necessary area. The fat and stem cells are combined leading to an increased rate of transplant and effects, resulting in skin regeneration and younger looking skin.
Advantages of smart stem cell fat grafting
- 1. Expect semi permanent anti aging effect with 1 procedure.
- 2. Young and healthy fat cells are used for higher rate of transplant.
- 3. Almost no rate of infection due to use to one’s own tissue.
- 4. Removal of wrinkles, improved tightness, and clear skin tone.
- 5. Pore tightening, improvement of acne scars and skin troubles.
- 6. Almost no swelling or scarring.
** Stem Cell:
A human body has 200 different kinds of cells numbering up to 60 trillion. Most cells are in bones, nerves, and muscles, but cells with the special ability to become different cells are called stem cells.
Stem cell used in smart stem cell fat grafting
Smart system fat grafting includes stem cells which does not cause DNA disfiguration, and the transplanted fat receive nutrition so that the surrounding tissue helps growth, resulting in elasticity and wrinkle refinement.
Smart stem cell fat grafting process
Smart system fat grafting extracts fat from the abdomen or thighs and uses lipokit equipment to extract natural fat without exposure to air. After extraction of stem cells, it is mixed and grafted onto designed area.
